Yankee doodle went to town
Riding on a pony
He stuck a feather in his cap
And called it macaroni...

Hey Guys, Just received an email from my friend from Phoenix, comments please?

Very important health alert!

← Reuters: WASHINGTON, April 8 | Fri Apr 8, 2011 11:16pm EDT

Hey folks….
4/9/2011 — URGENT — ELEVATED (full mid-range) RADIATION — soon to arrive on west coast USA

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Already forecasted to be hitting Alaska NOW.. and west coast tomorrow (April 9/10, 2011)..

Full mid levels of Cesium , Xenon, and Iodine.. particulate matter, in the cloud vapor from surface level to 5000m (15,000 feet) ..

These levels are now a full level higher than all the previous forecasts.

It is up to you to decide how you want to approach this data.

Personally, I believe it to be IN THE PRECIPITATION for sure.. which means you do not want to get the rain or snow on you, and do not want to injest the fluid.. (i.e. drink the water) until levels deminish.

here are all the links: make sure to refresh each one so you get the most current data:

the revealed US site:

http://www.atmos.umd.edu/~tcanty/hysplit/

the known European sites forecasting basically the same data:

http://www.woweather.com/weather/news/f ... uhemis137&

http://www.woweather.com/weather/news/f ... eurad5000&

Here is a list of the radioactive particles in the air.
Taken from the 3-16-11 on ZAMG site.

XE-133
CS-134
BA-136M
CS-136
CS 137
I-131
I-132
I-133
TE-132

Higher plumes, reaching 5000 meters (15,000 feet) are forecast to reach Portugal, Spain, and central europe.

All animations are from professional forecasting services. Links are below.

The radiation flow, forecast and shown by these several models… tells the tale of the isotopes coming our way… .. it will be up to you to decide if you should go outside during the time these clouds are over the USA, Canada, and Mexico…

Well, what i do for a living is very gratifying, as it helps people, and if it so happen that i go while on a job / project, then that will be my time.
Which is very likely, as i visit these infested areas on a daily basis... :D

The accident level is now raised from 5 to 7 equalling Chernobyl as far as accidents are concerned:
The new ranking signifies a "major accident" that includes widespread effects on the environment and health, according to the Vienna-based IAEA.

Though no need for panic, as the accident is far less than Chernobyl at this time, though the levels could increase.

There are no job vacancies in Japan. Look at this statistics.
Singapore is a much smaller country, but it offers even more job opportunities.

https://jobs3.netmedia1.com/cp/find.ibm.jobs/location/

Japan (2)
Singapore (221)

But that 's not due to the Japanese earthquake. They have very
inefficient employment practices.
